Thirsty Thursday: If I Could Drink, I Would

If I could drink, I'd be blotto right now. But since I can't, I'll share this depressing bit of lit for Thirsty Thursday.

Twelve-year-old Sabella Laaksonen looked up into the star-filled sky as she stood by the rental cabin beside Dark Lake in Eagle, Vermont on the last night of summer vacation, and made a wish.

“Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight. I wish I may, I wish I might have the wish I wish tonight. I wish I had a friend who I could tell my secrets to—a friend who would understand and like me for who I am, not who they think I could be if I just tried harder.”

Sabella had been raised to believe that if you are kind, others will be kind to you, but she found that others are only kind if they think you’re pretty, and nobody thought that Sabella was pretty.

These paragraphs are from my WIP, Toys in the Attic. If you like that crap, you can head over to LBRY and buy the whole chapter (approximately 3000 words) for 15 LBC (approximately $0.30.)

That's all for this Thirsty Thursday. Feel free to share your links in the comments and I'll try to check them out and share them next time I do a Thirsty Thursday.
